Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

78 Days to Harvest 

6-12 Ounce Fruit (About the size of a fist)

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


This is a Russian heirloom, named for the famous opera singer and equal rights advocate.  The flavor on these is unparalleled in any other tomato. They have a unique smokiness, with a great balance of acidity and sweetness, all contained in a 6-12 ounce red fruit. Another all around good tomato, great for slicing, saucing, canning etc. 


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
